Ah. A side swept beret. I think that makes her a likely candidate.
The women look great in this film. No Baggy jeans and boat shoes here.
I wish that narrator would stop shouting though.


Of course they were very different times.

Who called this "sexist"? A 20yr old maybe?
It's just a newsreel that HIGHLIGHTS women and
their fashions in the workplace.

It's nonsense to call this "sexist".
There's nothing sexist about it.

To the contrary, it PROMOTES women
in the workplace.

I struggle to imagine the world this was made in. Very funny.
